Excessive workouts may increase risk of deadly heart problems

Recent studies conducted in Germany and Sweden suggest that excessive fitness workout may increase the risk of heart attack, Mail Online reported on May 14.

In the study conducted by researchers in Germany, they claimed that people with existing heart problems may have an increased risk of dying from a stroke or heart attack. In another study, researchers in Sweden suggests that younger men may develop abnormal heart rhythm in their older years by performing more than five hours of strenuous exercise every week. However, people aged 60 years or older may lessen their chance of having an abnormal heart rhythm by 13 percent if they do a brisk walk or ride a bicycle for at least an hour everyday compared to those who do not exercise.

Older men with low testosterone levels are also at a greater risk of suffering from heart attack if they take testosterone supplements.
